Next PS2-on-PS4 Game Arrives, 5 More Reportedly Rated
PS2 launch title FantaVision makes its debut on PS4 for $10.
The PlayStation 2 Classics library on PlayStation 4 continues to expand. The latest addition, PS2 launch title FantaVision, was released this week with the PlayStation Store refresh. It normally costs $10, but PlayStation Plus members can pick it up right now for $7.50.
With FantaVision's arrival, the PS2 Classics library on PS4 now stands at 10 games. It launched with eight earlier this month, while PaRappa the Rapper 2 became the ninth game in the lineup last week.
More are coming in the future. While Sony has not announced a roadmap of what games are on the way and when they'll arrive, listings from the ESRB may have revealed what's coming next. The ESRB already rated Max Payne for PS4, suggesting Rockstar's game is coming to the program, while five more PS2 titles were reportedly recently rated for the new machine.
Earlier this month, PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida said Sony will work "tirelessly" to release even more PS2 games for PS4 "on a regular basis." The company is also asking for your suggestions for which games should be added.
On the subject of price points for the PS2-on-PS4 games, Yoshida said the emulation technology that makes it possible, among other things, doesn't necessarily come cheap. That's why Sony is charging $10-$15 for games you might already own.
